James An, Head of China Desk

My quote: “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

My role at London Residential: My role at London Residential is to work with all our Asian investors and create a bespoke service for you. I will be on hand to liaise between you and our London Residential team, ensuring all your needs are met.

Background: I was educated in both China and UK. After receiving my Master in Art degree from Durham University, I joined Daimler Trucks & Buses China Ltd. I worked in this company for over 14 years in several different roles such as senior marketing officer, sales operation manager, head of Business Development, dealer network management manager. Then I moved from China to the UK in 2018 to find my new path. In order to broaden my career horizon and gain UK working experience, I joined a UK recruitment company to take the charge of their recruitment administration and customer care management. In 2019, when I felt I was ready to do my own business in the U.K. I joined Me Living Ltd. as an Executive Director. After several months’ experience, I must say, I love real estate business very much. I’d like to continue my career on this road in the future.

These are a few of my favourite things: My most favourite thing would be Football and I supported Milan since I was teenager. Reading, especially Science related books, consumed most of my leisure time. I also prefer to gain new experience during travelling, I always go hiking when time and weather allowed me.
